Hi guys, thanks for checking out my tut. This is real old now (from 2007) so some things might be a little different (Gimp might look different or some filters have different names or whatever.)

- Jordan, 2012


Thanks everyone for all the favourites! It's really heartwarming to know that so many people care about my tutorial. To everyone who really enjoy using this tutorial, or learnt anything from it, I hope you go on to be better than this XD

Read my Gimpsentials tutorial to learn about handy GIMP tips like how to save your image with the layers saved too! Click here to go there now.

UPDATE: For everyone that doesn't know, you can set the Mitre Limit to 100,
which means that your bezier curve joins will ALWAYS be pointy!
Just learnt this myself ^^; Here is a screenshot to help you:

My first tutorial! If you like it or use it, please comment! It only
takes two seconds. Faves are appreciated too!

You could still be able to benefit from this if you're using Photoshop too!

Can you please answer my question back. I was wondering if it is possible for me to produce good artwork using Gimp and just my mouse? I do not have a drawing tablet.

Sure, yes it's possible but it depends on what look you are after. With a mouse it's hard to produce natural-looking strokes. You might be better off trying SAI which has a curves tool which is good for mice to do nice lines. I did a lot of my earlier work with just a mouse in GIMP and it's okay but I would never go back to using my mouse from my tablet now. I hope that helps~

Yes that helps a lot! I also happen to have Sai I just haven't learned to use it yet. Thanks again.

I think it is an older version, the tutorial is from 2006. Some things may have changed, check the description for details
